The fastest man in the NFL can’t show off his speed on the sidelines, and that’s where he’ll be today.

Bengals rookie receiver John Ross, whom Cincinnati selected with the ninth overall pick in this year’s draft in part because of his record-setting 4.22-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine, is inactive today.

Ross isn’t hurt, the Bengals just don’t think he’s one of the 46 players who give them the best chance to win.
